Lisa Rinna’s daughter, Amelia Gray Hamlin, opened up about her body image issues and eating disorder during the August 19 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now, the model is opening up about something else that has greatly affected her: her experience dealing with body acne.
During the August 25 episode of Dear Media’s The Skinny Confidential Him & Her podcast, Amelia described the “worst breakout of [her] whole entire life,” which appeared after a trip to Coachella when she was 16.
“I was so self conscious. I would literally cry myself to sleep. Like when I say bumps, I literally mean like, thousands of bumps down my back, down my chest,” she said. “And I thought it was the end of the world. Like I thought I was gonna die like this, and I was so depressed. I had never really, truly grasped how acne can make you depressed, 'cause I never have got it.”
After feeling too self-conscious to go on set and model, Amelia visited a special disease control doctor at Cedar Sinai, who gave her a “really retro wash” to use, which unfortunately did not provide the results she was looking for.
“So after multiple visits of the doctor, I started washing my chest and back with Nécessaire body wash,” she said, noting that it’s not a company she is sponsored by, but instead just a product that has really helped her. “It cleared my whole entire skin. I always praised them, like, I don’t know what’s in your body wash, or what’s not in it, but it literally changed my life.”
